(21-3-2022). The Government does not rule out granting a package of specific measures for the sectors affected by the high prices of the cost of energy, although for this it must wait for the response granted by the European Union on March 29.
The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, José Luis Escrivá, stated this Monday that the Government does not rule out granting direct aid to the sectors affected by high energy prices, although he has insisted on the need to wait until the 29th. , after the European Council next weekend, to take action at national level.
“It makes all the sense in the world to have the European framework, especially when the European Council is going to take place in a few days and above all we hope that it will help decouple the impact of the price of gas on the price of electricity. From then on, our measures will be complementary”, Escrivá said in statements to TVE collected by Europa Press.
In the meantime, he explained that the Spanish government is “fine-tuning” its package of measures and receiving “inputs” from the affected economic agents and sectors. Thus, this afternoon the Executive, with Vice President Nadia Calviño, will meet with unions and employers.
“Packages have to be designed well, they have to be complementary. We are going to respond in days and we have already shown that we design public policies with great precision and finesse”, Escrivá pointed out.
